Internet Access in Teachey, North Carolina

Information on this page is based on the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage reporting. We leverage direct provider coverage reports to validate the information. Plan and pricing data shown here is hand-gathered by our market research division. We have aggregated 198 Internet plans in Teachey since 2014.

Taking a look now at network technologies being used around Teachey, the most common wired broadband Internet technology options are DSL and Cable, with 94.18% and 50.22% respectively. TV companies are usually the source for cable Internet service, since they can re-purpose pre-existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to the Internet. Cable often makes sense for Teachey residents because of the strong speeds in an attainable price range. Phone providers are the main source for DSL Internet, which makes technical sense because DSL sends digital information over phone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted and bundled copper construction seen in telephone lines allows for lower performance compared to newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.

50.96 percent of residents (1,000 residents total) are limited to a single choice for wired Internet.

Data Caps and Cord Cutting Around Teachey

Data collected by our researchers shows that popular ISPs in the area currently use data caps for their residential Internet packages. Data caps are controversial because users see them as a strategy to discourage video streaming, while providers explain that caps are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. In either case, the problem is over-the-top streaming services, which can eat up anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
